MINOR IN MARINE STUDIES
The Minor in Marine Studies is designed for those students who are interested in gaining a deeper understanding of the world ocean, the seabed, and the coastal zone. Students may choose either of two tracks: Physical Ocean Science or Marine Ecosystems. Students choosing either track must complete 9 credits of required courses and 9 credits of electives. Ordinarily, students in the minor would enroll in MAST 492 Seminar: Marine Environmental Case Studies after all other requirements for the minor have been met.
The Minor in Marine Studies consists of 18 credits: three required courses and three elective courses of three credits each. From the elective courses, students should take at least two courses at the 400 or 600 level, and at least one course with an "MAST" listing. Students must receive a grade of "C-" or better for the course to count toward completion of the minor.
